WASHINGTON, D.C. / DECEMBER 13, 2017 — After crowdsourcing dozens of possible names for a new park at the corner of 3rd and L streets NE and then putting three of the best options to a public vote, the NoMa Parks Foundation (NPF) announced that “Swampoodle Park” will be the name of the community playground and dog park, which is currently under construction. More than 1,500 votes were cast for a name in a three-week online poll, with 67% of respondents selecting “Swampoodle Park” over “Old City Corner” (21%) and “3rd and L Park” (12%).
